Of all the joy which I have found

That laughs and weeps and will abound

And as emotions that astound

Too often seem to be compound

The love of God which is unbound

Fills all my days with peace surround !

 

FIRST LOVE IS FOREVER ( 2019 ) 2019/05/17

There is a tale I wish to share

Bout teenaged feelings, love and care

There was a girl of but fifteen

He was a boy of just eighteen

Each Sunday sharing the church pew

Who can decide what each one knew ?

 

What was it they were thinking of

Because quite soon it looked like love

Though young and silly girls may be

Assured were both she cared for he

He was a lad, handsome and tall

In every way, he seemed her all.

 

On Sunday morn, dad passed the plate

She taught a class, they walked home late

Along the Boulevard they’d chat

They walked and talked of this and that

Soon the young man was her best friend

Perhaps with each their lives they’d spend.

 

Now at this time the world was sick

Young men fought wars in battles thick

That was the year her daddy died

When she felt so alone inside

So many issues war creates

Among those most when faith abates.

 

How could they know before that day

The war would filch their love away

Of all events that I have seen

And all the places I have been

Too precious now those days bygone

That their first love was based upon.

 

So sad the pain that war does bring

As all their dreams took flight and wing

Thus never to return that way

Not then or any other day

Too bad this story has no end

No memory nor any friend !

 

 

 

 

RETROSPECT ( 2019 ) 2019/05/13

Days come and go, they slip away

To morph into some yesterday

Where yesterdays forgotten lie

Reminding all of past goodbye.

Too sad that we cannot replace

Those memories of last embrace

As o’er the years of each regret

Somehow the pain we can’t forget.

Our vision dims, the picture fades

And we are here left with charades

That echo pain and misery

Of loving days that used to be !

Help me,  oh Lord, to find the way

Back home to You at end of day

Give me the strength to carry on

When all my energy seems gone

Show me the path that leads to peace

Where all my pain at last will cease !

 

NOT ALL BLISS ( 2019 ) 2019/05/08

Each day I rise with great surprise

To find the world before my eyes

I thank the Lord that I’m alive

And query how I still survive !

I’ve lived this life a long, long time

Indeed it’s been a tedious climb

At times I’ve thought I can’t go on

But rules are what life’s based upon !

Forgive me Lord for doubting You

What e’er You’ve taught, it is all true

I’ll carry on,  I promise this

And know that life is not all bliss !

 

 

 

 

FEELINGS ( 2019 ) 2019/05/01

This is my home, my place of birth

The dearest spot to me on earth

Because it’s where my life did start,

I learned to love and use my heart.

For every moment of each day

When I was taught to speak and pray

This is the place I shall recall

That still remains the best of all.

A gentle touch, a tender hug

A handshake or a kindly tug

Are ways we show how much we care

And promise always to be there !

 

BEFORE THE FALL ( 2019 ) 2019/04/29

The world’s comprised of many types of folks

Both young and old, lass and lads, dames and blokes

Perhaps a total of eight billion strong

Inhabit  earth wherein we all belong

May the Lord have mercy upon us all

Helping each to find peace before we fall !
